Throughout this book are numerous references to Web sites, social networking platforms and tools, people, techno-jargon, research studies, and some really relevant quotes. In order to get the most out of the book, the authors wanted to share as much as possible and created this appendix to not only act as a reference for specific sources of information but to also provide readers with an aggregated source of additional information and insight that might be useful in the professional or personal quest for additional information on social media.
And since the social media space moves so quickly, the authors will be providing additional information and references over time on www.auditingsocialmedia.com.
